What we do

Everything we do aims to help children, young people and their families recover from their experiences of crime.

We provide face-to-face emotional support and counselling in schools to children who’ve witnessed or been victims of crime.

We provide telephone and online emotional support to help young people understand their feelings, rebuild their self confidence and self esteem.

We give practical support to help families, whose lives have been devastated by crime, get back on their feet. We provide every day essentials from food and clothing vouchers to books, toys, mobile phones and tablets.

We tailor our support to meet the needs of your child and your family.

Rhys’s story

Support where it’s needed

Embrace provides four distinct areas of support for children, young people and family members..


Straightforward practical support has included paying for school uniform after a bullied child was forced to move home and providing music lessons for a withdrawn teenager who’d been assaulted.


We’ve built a network of counsellors and partnered with Relate too, so Embrace can provide specialist support for young people traumatised by crime. We’ve also developed a family focused approach in this area of our work.


Embrace representatives working within dedicated Victims’ Hubs give us the opportunity to reach out directly to families and children affected by crime and tailor our emotional support, advice and guidance to exactly what’s needed.


Sometimes a family break can make all the di erence. Theme park days and Disney residential holidays have been shown to substantially help the healing process for children and families a icted by serious crime.

We don’t believe any child needing specialist help should have to go on a waiting list.

We always carry out an initial assessment for counselling referrals and, where appropriate, will match those in need of help with specialist young people and family counsellors.

Alternatively you can contact us by telephone or email. We aim to respond in most cases within 48 hours. Urgent referrals will be prioritised.
